I Met a HUGE Goal Today!

I have some GREAT news to share today! I have been working hard since late last June and I have officially LOST 65 POUNDS as of this morning! Last night, my husband and I decided to take a trip to Florida this April and I just found out that, although I have clothing for the fall and winter months, I have nothing to wear for the spring and summer! None of my shorts or summer tops fit me anymore! I have to go shopping before this trip to get something to wear! I intend to shop while down there as we will be there for a week so I will be able to bring back a fair amount of stuff on my customs exemption, but I have to have something to wear for at least a few days... 
I still have about 10-12 pounds to lose and the goal is to lose that by the time Convention rolls around in July, if not a little sooner.That last bit is the hardest... 

For all of you who are working on a weight loss goal, it IS possible. I did without a formal program - simply by portion control, drinking lots of water and daily walking (60 minutes a day with my doggie). And I did it SLOWLY - that's the key. You don't need to spend a lot of money on a formal program to make it happen. Most people end up dropping out of those programs anyways because they are so restrictive in most cases. I have been able to eat away from home without much difficulty whereas most people on a "plan" have a terrible time with that aspect of their diet. I would be happy to answer any questions - feel free to email me if you want. All I can tell you is that I feel 100% better with more energy, more confidence and I am loving the "new me"!
